Big haul

A crook broke into a Fourth Avenue restaurant sometime between April 2 and 3 and stole nearly $8,500.

The nogoodnik broke into the eatery through the basement door between 55th and 56th streets between 10 pm on April 2 and 8 am the next day, according to police.

Officers say he caused damage to the basement door and interior door on his way in, and broke the cash machine open once inside. He then threw liquid vinegar over it and left through the basement door, police noted.

Drug bust

Police arrested a pair of men who they say had more than 1,000 milligrams of ketamine on Eighth Avenue on April 3.

Officers nabbed the men inside a bar between 39th and 40th streets just before 3 am, when they were conducting a business inspection. The men tried to conceal the vials of the drugs with their feet, according to the report.

Stolen wheels

A robber stole a 2015 Chevrolet Suburban from 58th Street sometime between April 6 and 7.

The driver told cops he parked the car between Seventh and Eighth avenues at about 10 pm on April 6, and when he returned around 10 am the next day, the car was gone.
